Connect to WooCommerce Data in RapidMiner

Integrate WooCommerce data with standard components and data source configuration wizards in RapidMiner Studio.

This article shows how you can easily integrate the CData JDBC driver for WooCommerce into your processes in RapidMiner. This article uses the CData JDBC Driver for WooCommerce to transfer WooCommerce data to a process in RapidMiner.

Connect to WooCommerce in RapidMiner as a JDBC Data Source

You can follow the procedure below to establish a JDBC connection to WooCommerce:

  1. Add a new database driver for WooCommerce: Click Connections -> Manage Database Drivers.
  2. In the resulting wizard, click the Add button and enter a name for the connection.
  3. Enter the prefix for the JDBC URL: jdbc:woocommerce:
  4. Enter the path to the cdata.jdbc.woocommerce.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.woocommerce.WooCommerceDriver
  6. Create a new WooCommerce connection: Click Connections -> Manage Database Connections.
  7. Enter a name for your connection.
  8. For Database System, select the WooCommerce driver you configured previously.
  9. Enter your connection string in the Host box.

    WooCommerce supports the following authentication methods: one-legged OAuth1.0 Authentication and standard OAuth2.0 Authentication.

    Connecting using one-legged OAuth 1.0 Authentication

    Specify the following properties (NOTE: the below credentials are generated from &service; settings page and should not be confused with the credentials generated by using WordPress OAuth2.0 plugin):

    • ConsumerKey
    • ConsumerSecret

    Connecting using WordPress OAuth 2.0 Authentication

    After having configured the plugin, you may connect to WooCommerce by providing the following connection properties:

    • OAuthClientId
    • OAuthClientSecret
    • CallbackURL
    • InitiateOAuth - Set this to either GETANDREFRESH or REFRESH

    In either case, you will need to set the Url property to the URL of the WooCommerce instance.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the WooCommerce JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.woocommerce.jar

    Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

    A typical connection string is below:

    Url=https://example.com/; ConsumerKey=ck_ec52c76185c088ecaa3145287c8acba55a6f59ad; ConsumerSecret=cs_9fde14bf57126156701a7563fc87575713c355e5; InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  10. Enter your username and password if necessary.

You can now use your WooCommerce connection with the various RapidMiner operators in your process. To retrieve WooCommerce data, drag the Retrieve operator from the Operators view. With the Retrieve operator selected, you can then define which table to retrieve in the Parameters view by clicking the folder icon next to the "repository entry." In the resulting Repository Browser, you can expand your connection node to select the desired example set.

Finally, wire the output to the Retrieve process to a result, and run the process to see the WooCommerce data.
